Yeah we have a lot of the old nice ones... but for me the Ferring is, well not the most important, but it is the first of many to come in the area... and except for the color and small size it's not that bad...

I would have gone with the Mall right next door ( Field's - Largest mall in Scandinavia ) but it's only about 35 m tall

I prefer the classics though, like Tribune. I lived across the street from there the last time I visited Chicago.

In 1895 isn't the Eiffel Tower ( 300 m in 1889) the tallest building in the world ?

Here in Christchruch, it must be the Roman Catholic Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, 101 years old. Perhaps the best Cathedral in Australasia

yeah, like Virtual said...I think the Eiffel Tower, like the CN Tower wasnt considered a building. Obviously its more impressive than my city hall considering when it was built.
